Inspired by Shakespeare, a beautiful, playful, and theatrical dance creation from the choreographer behind 2011’s Dark Matters.

A Kidd Pivot production presented by Canadian Stage.

In her new dance piece inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest, award-winning Canadian choreographer Crystal Pite stages a game of revenge and forgiveness, where reality dances with imagination. Integrating stunning visuals, projection and an original score, The Tempest Replica is a testament to Pite’s skill as an image-maker and storyteller of rare distinction. Patrons who enjoyed Pite’s Dark Matters in 2012 will love this new theatrical and inventive dance creation.

“Acclaimed choreographer Crystal Pite’s riff on Shakespeare is the don’t-miss event of the season” – Vancouver Sun.

“Pite … is a true genius of dance.” – The Globe and Mail.
